Ugly Roof Stains
Getting the stains removed from your roof is a great idea and when done properly your shingles are not damaged. The stains, commonly from algae and other organic growth, are alive and quite possibly living off the roofing materials themselves. The growth on your roof can also survive from matter that falls from your trees or dust that travels in the air. The rain will provide the water it needs and it is most likely you will have a fair amount of warm weather. The unsightly stains appear according to the type of organism. The algae is usually very dark in appearance. It will form in streaks or a solid blanket over the entire roof slope. You can get moss which is normally green and fluffy. Lichen is usually round spots and scaly looking. These are just a few common culprits.
